Ask Boomer: Don’t give up on math

Hi Boomer, I’m having a problem with math, and now I got a C. I keep thinking that I’m going to pick up my grades in math, but I just can’t. I’ve given up hope.

Please help, M.V.

Dear M.V. You’re a good and conscientious student. For some kids who struggle with a subject, a C can be a big accomplishment! Find a time to talk to your teacher for some ideas and even some extra problems to practice. Math isn’t easy for me, either. But I know that if I don’t give up, I eventually get it! You’re far from hopeless – you’re just math challenged.

Best of luck, Boomer Bear

Dear Boomer, I really want to be in the Young Reporters Program and be a TV anchor and so do my friends. I am scared that they won’t get in. Do you take everyone who signs up? I hope so, then we could do it together.

Love, P.Z.

Hey, P.Z., As long as you’re in grades 2 through 8 right now, you can be a Young Reporter and even give the news from the anchor desk at KVOA-4. The program is free and sharpens your writing and communications skills. You can even sit down with a friend or two and pound out a Pulitzer Prize-winning story for Bear Essential News! To print out the sign-up forms, go to www.BearEssentialNews.com and click on “Young Reporters.” Follow the buttons to the forms.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
